UNION – On Saturday, July 17, the Salem Roadhouse Café at Townley Presbyterian Church will present a special Jazz for Haiti benefit show.
The four-hour concert, beginning at 5 p.m., will feature an all-star lineup of over a dozen of the top names from the northern New Jersey Jazz scene, all together in one big show to help raise funds for Haitian Earthquake Relief. There is a $15 admission fee and all proceeds from this show will go directly to the people of Haiti.
Jazz greats such as Yvette Glover, Radam Schwartz, John DeMarco, Carrie Jackson, Alan Rosenthal , Gil “Bop” Benson, Antionette Montague, McLester McKee, Lou Rainone, Steve Freeman, Gordon Lane, and invited guests will perform in a non-stop music festival dedicated to helping the people of Haiti.
A moving Hatian hymn, sung by Liney Raphael, followed by an original tribute song to Haiti, “Far Away”, performed by Genesis Praise Band will open this musical extravaganza. Slides from the Haitian Congregation supported by Townley Church will be shown during the opening.
Refreshments will be available at the Roadhouse Refreshment Café and original art photography by Miron Abromovici will be on display at the Roadhouse Art Gallery.
